Pros

Excellent benefits and great people. I felt like I was truly making a difference.

Cons

Management forms close relationships with those who assimilate. The rest are treated like peons. It's not what you know but who you know and more importantly, who likes you.

Advice to Management

A wonderful company who is helping students everywhere but please try to be fair in processes involving employees.

    I have been working at College Board full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome work culture. As it is a non-profit, I can see the inspiration behind how work gets done here. It's a motivating atmosphere where leaders do not focus on profit but focus on if the people are happier & how we could make the atmosphere a better place for all.

    Cons

    Nothing worth highlighting as I can see only positives so far
